SQA National 5 Maths Exam: Appeal

This petition had 9,334 supporters

On the 12th of May 2016, many people sat the National 5 Mathematics exam across Scotland. The exam consisted of two papers - a non-calculator and a calculator. The second paper was challenging which is expected of course as examinations aren't supposed to be a breeze however, paper 1 was catastrophic and disastrous. Not only was some of the content unseen before but it was unlike any other past papers from previous years. Floods of tears have been shed as for those who have been offered a conditional for college or university, this exam was crucial to their entrance to the course. As well as this, 6th years who have no choice but to leave school will have no further chance of taking this exam in high school and this could hold them back significantly in the near future. I am speaking on behalf of every one else who sat this exam when I say this is just not acceptable and is not going to be tolerated. The pass mark needs to be lowered.
